Howard Albert Davis, age 60 of Versailles, went to be with the Lord on May 12, 2021 at the Marion General Hospital. On August 8, 1960, he was born to Lucille Davis in the Galion Hospital. He married his beloved wife, Laura Davis, on March 3, 2007, in Mansfield, OH at the Diamond Hill Cathedral.


Howard was a man of God and practiced his Christian beliefs faithfully. His wife describes him as an OSU Buckeye fanatic, and he could not go a conversation without representing them. She also said that he “bled scarlet and grey”. When he was not keeping up with OSU, he enjoyed going fishing and spending precious time with his wife. Howard loved to travel with Laura, and they often went on road trips when they could. He also had a soft spot for their two fur-babies, Bailey, and Maggie.


Howard is preceded in death by his mother; Lucille Davis, and sister; Beverly (Bill) Payne on his side. On Laura’s side of the family is preceded by her father; Rick (Sandy) Winkle, of Marion, OH. 


He is survived by his wife, Laura Davis, of Versailles, OH, grandmother-in-law; Ellie (Henry) Boles, mother-in-law; Sandy (Rick) Winkle, Laura’s aunt; Carolyn Decker, uncle; Jack Decker, of Marion, OH, brothers-in-law; Mark (Aaron Grippo) Winkle, Jason (Amanda) Winkle, niece and nephew; Olivia and Christian Winkle, sister; Pat (Rob) Bartholomew, of Mansfield, OH, her children; Jeremy (Shallana) Makeever, of Mansfield, OH, Jennifer (Scott) Payne, of Mansfield, OH, Ryan (Desa) Bartholomew, of Crestline, OH, Brandon Bartholomew, of Mansfield, OH, and numerous nieces and nephews.
